The season between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day is tough for many people. While others are celebrating, a pocket of despair may be festering inside. The loss of loved ones whether this year or many years ago can bring about heartache. Life changes due to relocation, relationship shifts, the empty nest, or simple expectations of the season can be overwhelming. Step inside a safe space to be with God and seek peace. If you choose, bring a photograph or memento. Bring a friend or relative.

St. Bartholomew’s Church is a parish in the Episcopal Diocese of Atlanta. We open our doors to all who seek God or a deeper knowledge of God. We are pleased you have chosen to visit us. We come here to celebrate what we believe about life and to be nourished and renewed for our daily living: in the work place, at school, with family and friends, and in times of solitude or loneliness. Worship is the center of our community’s life together, and the Eucharist is the center of our worship.
Outside of worship, we want to connect with one another on a spiritual and playful level, as well. We encourage participation in small-groups like education classes or book groups to get to know each other better. Our parish-wide activities provide opportunity for fun and fellowship, too. We have programs for children, youth, young adults, adults and seniors, all of which provide a perfect place to ‘jump-in’. We are inclusive, welcoming and always pleased to see new faces.
